Welcome to the 2017-2018 Academic School Year! I am thrilled to once again lead the academic charge for the Mighty Dragons. Much to your credit of the staff, students, and community, last year we saw a lot of instructional improvements and an increase in the school’s culture. I believe we will be eager and energized for the start of a new year and we look forward to passing that energy on to our wonderful students on a daily basis. M.S. Palmer continues to be a school built on 4 roots that are aligned with the Quitman County School District’s Strategic Vision and Goals:
- Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships
- Cultural Proficiency
- Professional Learning Communities
- State of the Art Technology
We will continue to work hard to ensure every child will enjoy a successful, exciting experience here at Madison S. Palmer High School. Our continued goal, as always, is to create a positive school climate that maximizes instructional time for student learning, while developing strong physical, social, and emotional characteristics in a safe environment.
As, the 2017-2018 school year progresses, I look forward to working with you to make this a successful and productive year. It is a privilege and honor to be a part of a family that takes opportunity to improve the lives of children daily. I am excited as we travel together on this educational journey towards excellence.
